Outside the lab, Piff found that the rich donated a smaller percentage of their wealth than poorer people. In 2011, the wealthiest Americans, those with earnings in the top 20%, contributed 1.3% of their income to charity, while those in the bottom 20% donated 3.2% of their income. The trend to meanness was worst in plush suburbs where everyone had a high income, and never laid eyes on a poor person. Insulation from people in need, Piff concluded, dampened charitable impulses. Poorer people were also more likely to give to those charities servicing the genuinely needy. The rich gave to high-status institutions such as already well-endowed art galleries, museums and universities, while Feeding America, which deals with the nation’s poorest, got nothing.

This is what I mean when I say most poor people — at least those who know what it is to be hungry — will share their last can of beans with you if you’re starving, but so many middle-class and rich people won’t give you anything from their full cupboards, always finding excuses.  Also, I’ve talked to delivery people and they say the people in my low-income housing project tip better than the rich people up the hill from us.  This is a thing.

When I was doing political canvassing during the Colorado midterms in 2010, I realized just how true this is. We weren’t seeking donations- we were registering people to vote- but  whenever we would talk to the lower income households (particularly: trailer parks) people would be all over themselves to ask how else they could help, and would usually offer donations. Compared to: the high-income areas where people wouldn’t even open their doors for you (the amount of times that I looked back after an unanswered door to see the fluttering curtain and a shadow moving away was surprisingly high).

And I fully agree with the info above about delivering- I’ve been a delivery driver all over, for many different companies, and without a doubt the worst tips that I have EVER received were when I would deliver to the frat houses in Austin TX- no matter that I was delivering $50+ orders (for SANDWICHES, this was Jimmy John’s), no matter that they were always custom with all the extras, no matter that I was on a BIKE, no matter that they would look me up and down and disgustingly smile about how they “got a cute one this time”- they would happily shut the door in my face without a second word after crossing a mark through the tip line on the receipt. 

The second worst was high-rise offices in Denver- the higher up, the worst they tipped. We always fought over delivering to bars because that was the only way you could be sure that someone was going to fairly tip.

My favorite thing about being an archer in Skyrim is when the slow motion kill cam follows the arrow and you get to sit back and watch as it just absolutely misses the target.

I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.

women in trades are treated like absolute shit. 

NO I’M STILL STUCK ON THIS WHY WOULD ANYONE SAY THIS TO A WOMAN HOLDING A BLOWTORCH

women of mythology - khione

cold as ice they say, with a hardened crystalline heart to keep the loneliness at bay. bitter and frigid as the northern mountain tops where she lives, she reigns alongside her parents and brothers, detached and withdrawn as she crafts her gifts for the mortals below.

she is the goddess of snow, bending water droplets to her will and turning them into something far more beautiful. ensuring to make each and every icy flake unique and individual. even deadly when she feels like it, and far too often she does.

like her mother who creates the bone chilling mountain gales, khione shows no mercy when her temper flares, sending blinding storms and destructive squalls across the mountain passes, hills, valleys and lands below, blanketing the earth with white, powdery snow.
